Longview Bowling Alleys Go Smokeless

There will be no smoking while you bowl in Longview bowling alleys as the lanes have conformed to a new city ordinance.

Both Longview Lanes and the Oil Bowl have taken the step to designate smoking areas away from the lanes.

Already, owners are being told by smoking bowlers that they will lose their business. Yet the lanes are seeing more interest from families and non-smoking groups who like the ban.

But owners and league organizers worry that a good section of their business will disappear.

All businesses must comply with the new city ordinance by September 1st.
